Non-Surgical Intervention

Many patients find relief from pain through physical medical rehabilitation performed by a physiatrist – a doctor skilled in the diagnosis of pain and the treatment of spinal and musculoskeletal disorders without surgery or pain medications. At Hunterdon Medical Center we offer several treatment options while also seeking to solve the underlying sources of pain.

Center for Pain Management 

Patients are referred to the pain center by their Primary Care Physician, neurosurgeon or orthopedic surgeon after other treatment modalities have been tried. Physical therapy is recommended prior to being considered for injections. Most pain conditions are best managed when combined with physical therapy or an exercise plan.

Available treatment options:

  • Injections
  • Epidural
  • SI joint
  • Intercostal
  • Hip
  • Trigger point
  • Facet joint injections
  • Sympathetic blocks
  • Illeo inguinal blocks
  • Spinal stimulators for radiating pain
  • Peripheral stimulators for non-radiating back pain
  • Inter-thecal pumps
  • Rhizotomy
  • Reiki is now being offered in conjunction with an office visit or treatment.
